I don't recommend using rebaseall. It didn't trash Cygwin but apache fails to start, and doesn't even get as far as outputting the usual errors about the libraries. Instead it gives this oh-so-informative message:

jcomeau@notebook ~
$ /usr/sbin/apachectl start
/usr/sbin/apachectl start: httpd could not be started

Next time I'll just keep using rebase, one DLL at a time, until I get the programs working, like I did the first time I got apache working. Using a grenade instead of a rifle sometimes has unfortunate consequences.
